Haina, has been referred to as the 'Dominican Chernobyl'. According to the United Nations, the population of Haina is considered to have the highest level of lead contamination in the world, and its entire population bears the scars. The contamination is believed to have been caused by the past industrial operations of the nearby Baterķas Meteoro, an automobile battery recycling smelter. Although the company has moved to a new site, the contamination still remains.
